What makes you think you're worthy?
You think just a few kind words will fix everything?
That everything shall be forgotten because you wish?
It doesn't work like that.
But I'll smile and say everything's okay,
when really the memories never fade
and truly never forgive you for what happened.
You don't deserve my forgiveness
and to think that you not only do, but are entitled to it,
shows just what kind of person you are.
No, I will never forgive you,
so while I smile and pretend to tolerate you,
don't let your guard down for a second.
I'm just waiting, waiting for that perfect moment
when I can hurt you,
Heartbreak MasqueradeI can't remember what it feels like to be happy...Heartbreak Masquerade1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My smile no longer shrouded in sincerity.
It is like a heartbreak masquerade, fooling everyone;
Exhausted, I remove my mask when the day is done.
I'm a professional at what I do: I hide what I feel -
When I get hurt, I pretend like it is no big deal.
In reality, it's killing me; feel my heart breaking
The sad part? My friends don't know that I'm faking.
I can't remember the sound of my laughter any more;
Feels odd when I smile, like I've never done it before.
My heart soaring with joy - well, that feeling is gone
Dreaming about another guy that isn't you feels wrong.
It is like I
Beyond The HorizonWe ran out of our homesBeyond The Horizon1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And our dream quelling streets
Until mud under foot
Had replaced the concrete
From suburb to city
On to the countryside
We were running away
But not trying to hide
The world was still spinning
Faster than we could move
Though our hearts were breaking
Our poets' words would sooth
We left a cloud grey town
And in time reached the sea
Our home for so long
Evolution tells me
To the deepest warm blue
From the coolest pitch black
Shackles fell with each stroke
With our dreams still intact
Surrounded by fishes
Guiding us from the deep
Every league of ascent
Reinforced our belief
That it's the world,

Alone and weak
As insults rain down
Across her rosy cheeks
Staining once pure skin
Is a knife to her heart.
Just kill yourself
No one would care
Silently she moves
Their taunting words
Haunting her every move
Where are you going?
Oh wait it doesn't matter
No one would love a bitch like you.
When she gets home,
Her mother doesn't ask
How she is
She goes to her room,
Cries more than she ever has before
And wishes for her life to end
As she falls asleep
She prays for some escape
From her personal hell.
Then she awakens the next day

That small yearning to swoon
overwhelmed by heat of the day.
Little girl, little girl
why are you crying?
Inside your restless soul
your heart is dying.
In the end you were meant to run
from the absolute start,
to find the truth behind the 'fun'
and protect your fragile heart.
I know how it is my dear,
to have that doubt making fear.
To see the infinite lies
and eventual demise.
To become enraptured in want of truth
making you an almost too accurate sleuth.
But something has already changed,
as your heart has became deranged.
Because you've always seen them run away,
The Real NightmareAs children we believed,The Real Nightmare1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
that monsters lived under our beds,
ready to gobble us up without a thought.
As young adults we believed,
that nightmares were nothing more
than just bad dreams,
that tugged at the edges of our consciousness,
and made us frightful of the dark.
Yet as adults we learn the truth
that nightmares are not just
monsters under the bed and bad dreams
As adults we know that,
They exist in people who are hurt
and people who maim and kill for fun.
So be afraid of the monsters under the bed,
be afraid of the dark and bad dreams,
for they are nothing compared,
to the real nightmare

She stumbles around
not even able to stay stable
she sits roughly on the ground
when a man comes up
and takes her somewhere else
Following the sounds
of muffled grunts
and drunken cries
the man is hovering over her
while she cries out
for anyone to help her
No one does
no one can hear
over the hammering music.
No one notices
when they both emerge
one a tear stained face,
and the other
Well the other,
goes to his friends
and gets congratulated.
The house on the hillUp on a hill there lived a house,The house on the hill1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
in that house lived an old man.
He had lived his long life
and had lived in that house his entire life.
He didn't have family
and stayed on the porch every day.
When the children would come
he would give out candy apples and sweets.
The children loved the nice old man
who lived on the hill.
Then the man on the hill
passed away and went to a better place.
The once great house,
faded from thoughts
as the town still grew below it.
Once shiny windows,
and flawless paint,
faded and became aged.
The garden once taken care of,
with wrinkled old hands,
became overcome with weeds.

she tears at the purple cloth,
trying to make the perfect shape.
Her design is messy,
but it's better than nothing,
as strings of fabric are everywhere.
Her hand holds the shard
while at her neck the chain bites
always keeping her attached,
to the cold hard ground.
Her beautiful butterfly design
flutters away from her,
yet her hand remains stretched before her
in a constant wish to have it return.
Her violet eyes never leave
the freedom that her butterfly possesses,
but only one thought
constantly goes through her head:
I cannot be free
but if one of us could,
I would wish for it to be you.

That thin white lineThere is a very fine line,That thin white line1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Between heaven and hell,
Good and evil,
What could happen and what doesn't,
Light and dark,
Life and death,
Animal and human,
Being hopeful and hopeless.
That thin white line
We walk every day
Not wanting to be bad
But yet not taking the effort to be good
We say we live
But how many of us actually live?
Our heart beating is the only thing
Saying that we're alive
Doing one bad thing
Can send someone to hell
But do we really deserve
The sanctuary of heaven?
We hunt for fun
Kill for joy
And yet we aren't
Light is pure.
Dark is tainted.
That gray area
Is where society lays.

And what do I see?
A boy that looks just like me
But this can't be me
He has a small smile on his lips
My lips forms a frown
His eyes sparkle
Mine are dull
His face is relaxed
Mine is full of anger
His hands are free
mine are tied
This boy in the mirror
Is my small mask
The boy I show
When I'm around
This isn't me
I'm not who you think

She couldn't keep the gun down
She couldn't keep her hopes high
Now she never makes a single sound
She couldn't help but feel weak
She couldn't hold on for a day longer
No one to wipe the tears from her face
No one to make her feel stronger
Now she's gone
Like a ghost train bound for nowhere
Like a whisper of smoke rising towards the sky
Gone like a shadow passing through an empty hallway
And nothings going to bring her back
She couldn't keep a smile on her face
She couldn't dry her tears
She couldn't go on with life knowing
She's never felt love in years
She couldn't help but feel helpless

I would like to believe people are good
And what they say is always true
But sometimes I wonder if I should
Have taken on the challenge of you
I don't believe in a lost cause
Though you may have proved me wrong
Because every now and then I pause
And wonder where all the love had gone
There were so many sleepless nights
Worrying about your well being
Meanwhile you never even tried
To care about how I was feeling
In time I know I'll be fine
As I pay attention more to me
And of course you selfish swine
Will only focus on your needs
I grew tired of cleaning up your mess
While most of what you said were lies

She dropped her razor blades, threw them away too
She wiped up the blood that she had on her skin
She lifted her head up, ready to start again
She descended her heart to me like an angel from above
After holding on to life, she finally found love
Something changed inside her and she decided to live
She had heart a full of joy and a lot of love to give
She wiped away her tears and held a smile on her face
Now she's happy here with me and we found a better place
She thought no one would miss her, they'd just leave her be
Now she knows that she matters, because she matters to me

Darkness looms where light can't follow
Under moons we cringe and swallow
Fear burrowing in our minds we feature
Illusions of all the strangest of creatures
In the night we sweat and sway
Like the helpless trees in May
And when we sleep we lay there caught
In the middle of these ghastly thoughts
We lay asleep completely unaware
With our back turned to what is there
Demons and ghosts without a care
Battered maidens with long brown hair
They poke and prod us in our dreams
With needles and thoughts of unseen things
That we later ponder, stare, and wonder
What lies beyond and ripped asunder
We may never know what brin

I would be lying if I said that I didn't
Think of you every time I close my eyes,
That my mind doesn't wander to thoughts
Of you whenever I'm lonely,
That I don't whisper your name
While I sleep.
Truth be told, I am inevitably in love with you.
In a way that makes my heart skip a beat every time
I see you smile, every time I hear you laugh.
It's the fact that I still get butterflies whenever
You lightly whisper my name in my ear
That lets me know we are something more.
Nothing has ever seemed so comforting than
The feeling of your arms wrapped around my waist.
